Yeah a luxury tax has really kept baseball salaries down.
Baseball is in a different category. You can buy teams in baseball where chemistry isn't all that important. In hockey if you have a powerfull tax most teams would shy away from that not wanting to take a chance like the Rags did. Chemistry is everything in hockey.
